Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Chris Coghlan is on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will likely be in the outfield mix before too long as he was just activated from the 15-day disabled list. Coghlan is listed as No. 1 on the LF depth chart, but keep an eye on Denorfia moving forward. He has two hits in three at-bats and could move into a platoon with Coghlan against left-handed pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia is expected to serve in a platoon role when healthy, and he could be a decent FantasyScore value at just $2,200 (or 4.4% of cap) when the matchup is right.
